We had a great Mother’s Day over here. Brooke slept in until EIGHT IN THE MORNING and then a few hours later my mom watched her for a bit so that I could take a nap. After my nap Brooke brought in my Mother’s Day gift… Heavenly dark chocolate/caramel pretzels.
Brooke knows me well and she knows the best way to my heart.
She also made me a bouquet of flowers in nursery at church. She kind of went overboard yesterday.
You know you did a 23 miler the day before when this is your appetizer to dinner. A family that I used to nanny for had a big party yesterday. It was crazy to see how much those kiddos have grown (um… they are in college and high school now?!?!) up since I used to nanny for them. Nannying for this family was such a fun job. I just really love taking care of kids.
After those heavenly pork sandwiches (and they had Olive Garden salad there too!!) we drove up north to my aunt’s house for dinner #2 and Brooke had some quality dog time with Snickers.
PS speaking of Olive Garden—> they made it to the #2 spot in the Definitive Ranking Of Free Restaurant Bread. I don’t know how they make those breadsticks so incredible.
Okay, that was kind of a random tangent… back to dinner.
Brooke is just a tad bit spoiled by my family. My aunt set up the perfect little viewing area for Brooke to watch part of Lion King.
My aunt is an incredible runner and she is doing the Utah Grand Slam this year. 4 marathons in 6 months:
My body just aches thinking of attempting to do the Grand Slam.
BBQ chicken sandwiches with avocado for round 2. I am not usually very hungry the day of a long run but the next day is out of control and I pretty much never stop eating that day.
And quality time with my cousin. Definitely needed.
In bed at 8:44 pm with my true love, S’mashing S’mores. If you go Trader Joe’s and can only buy one thing… this is what you have to buy.
Pet owners—> what is your pet’s name… how old?
Marathoners—> how many have you done? How many in one year?
Favorite free bread from a restaurant?
-I would have to say Olive Garden breadsticks.
